Automation Hub icon in Discovery Results view

A task that has any trace exported receives the Automation Hub icon on the Discovery Results view that opens the associated idea in Automation Hub on click.
Traces in such tasks can only be exported to the same idea.

 

Working with Task Mining Exported Automation Ideas

After successfully exporting a trace to Automation Hub, the new automation idea is shown in the Explore Automation Program page.

📘

Note:

When a new idea is submitted in Automation Hub, a notification email is sent to users with the Program Manager role.

The new automation idea contains the following information:

  • Task Mining Submitter - with the default permissions to edit the About and Documentation page.
  • Process Owner - if one has been selected when exporting the task.
  • Description - Information added by Task Mining user when exporting the trace and some default details as:
    This idea is coming from a Project: {project_name}.
    Discovery results: {discovery_results_name}.
    Task name: {task_name}.
    Submitted by: [email protected]
  • Useful Links - A link is available to go back to the corresponding task in Task Mining from which the idea was submitted.
  • Documentation - Contains 3 files that Task Mining sends to Automation Hub for each trace: Studio export (.xaml file), Process Definition Document (.doc) and Task Capture file (.ssp). The title of every file contains the task id, trace number, and "Exported from Task Mining" string to let you know the source of the files.

Updating an Exported Task

Adding more or updated documents from a trace of an already exported task to Automation Hub can be done by selecting Export to Automation Hub within the specific trace. A side panel opens so you can export documentation for this trace to the Idea Documentation section.
